A loan helped a member to buy shampoo, rinses, dyes, creams, hairspray, and other products.


Mujeres Victoriosas Group's story

This group was formed by the joining together of friends and neighbors of the city of Asunción. Their goal is to grow not only economically, but also as people. They strive for a better quality of life for their loved ones so that they don't suffer hardships.

One of them is Mirta, who has a beauty salon. She says that, through her sacrifices, she was able to start her business and that, thanks to her work and continuing sacrifice, it has improved. She mentions that her work has allowed her to get ahead and cover her family's necessities, but comments that this has become difficult in the last few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, since she can't work as she would normally. This means that she can't generate income to cover her obligations.

She is requesting this loan to invest in her business and stock it with what she needs, like shampoo, rinses, dyes, creams, hairspray, and other products. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving because it will be a great help to her in continuing and boosting her business.
